FAQ

Q.
Please tell me about the establishment of the Company.
A.
Yuta Tsuruoka, the founder, Representative Director, and CEO of BASE Co., Ltd. established BASE Co., Ltd. in December 2012. The purpose of the foundation was to shorten the examination period for the introduction of payment functions, which had been an issue in e-commerce, and to provide a mechanism for anyone to easily create a well-designed e-commerce site without using specialized techniques for constructing and designing a website. After that, the Company converted Pureca, Inc., which operates online payment services, into its wholly owned subsidiary In December 2014 (liquidated in May 2018). This accelerated our online payment service business and led to the launch of online payment service “PAY.JP” and ID payment service “PAY ID.” In January 2018, we spun off the “PAY.JP” and “PAY ID” businesses and established PAY, Inc.as a 100% subsidiary. We also established BASE BANK, Inc. in January 2018 to provide financial services as a new business.
